Banana Walnut Muffins

Banana Walnut Muffins 1
Ingredients

  • 4 Medium Bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (60ml)
  • 1/4 Cup of Honey/Maple Syrup (60ml)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
  • 2 Cups of Ground Almonds (300g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Gluten Free Oats (50g)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup of Walnuts (75g)

These are gorgeous as part of a weekend breakfast spread or for grabbing on the go. They’re grain free so they’re light and fluffy with lovely warmth from the cinnamon and a little crunch from the walnuts.  Prepare for your kitchen to smell like heaven!

Preheat the oven to 180’C.

Add the bananas, eggs, vanilla, honey and melted coconut oil to your blender and blitz until smooth. If you don’t have one, mash the bananas well with a fork and then add in the eggs, vanilla, honey and melted coconut oil and whisk well.

In a separate bowl, combine the ground almonds, gluten free oats, baking powder and cinnamon and mix it all together.

While mixing, gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then chop the walnuts and fold them into the mixture.

Line your muffin tin with muffin cases or baking paper and spoon the mixture into each one, filling them all the way to the top.

Bake at 180’C for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

    Hi Indy,

    Would these freeze well? Thanks

    You don’t mention the walnuts in the instructions. Do you roughly chop? I assume it doesn’t matter when you add them? The image appears to have banana slices on top of the muffins. Are they in addition to the 4 bananas listed? Or from them?
    Thanks.

      The walnuts are chopped and added in at the end. The bananas on top I decorated with are optional and in addition to the four mentioned x

    Hi,

    Can this same mixture be poured into a loaf tin to make a full cake rather than muffins?
    If so, would be measurements be roughly the same?
